Jn 1:1-5 Jesus, more than a Prophet and more than a Mortal

John 1:1-5 (NIV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it

{We  know that the ‘Word’ here is speaking of Jesus.} 

  1. Jesus is eternal 
  2. Jesus is separate from God
  3. Jesus is with God from the beginning 
  4. Jesus is God 
  5. Through Jesus everything was made 
  6. In Jesus there is life and light 
  7. Everything that is dark & sinful can not understand Jesus (It is darkness and sin that keeps us from understanding Jesus. Ask Him to bring to light the dark areas in your life)

*** Comment : The depth of truth in these few passages and their implications are profound. Take time to meditate on them with a good commentary and a logical mind. ***
